Schoe­man to ap­pear in Abu Dhabi

7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

Rio Olympic bronze medal­ist Henri Schoe­man and two-time Olympian Richard Mur­ray have con­firmed their par­tic­i­pa­tion at next year’s ITU World Triathlon Abu Dhabi. Schoe­man made history at Rio 2016 when he took home South Africa’s first ever triathlon medal. The 25-year-old then went on to win his first World Triathlon Se­ries gold medal at the Grand Fi­nal in Cozumel last month, a fit­ting way to wrap-up his mem­o­rable sea­son. “Abu Dhabi is al­ways an im­por­tant race be­cause it is the first one on the cal­en­dar,” said Schoe­man. “And this year I’m es­pe­cially amped to check out the new course. With the race now on Yas Is­land we will get the chance to make our way around the cir­cuit. I can’t wait to en­joy some time off af­ter the race.” The Abu Dhabi Triathlon will take place from March 3-4, 2017.
